Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong lauded the visit made by Secretary of the Communist Party of Cuba (CPC) Central Committee and head of the CPC Central Committee’s Department of External Relations Jose Ramon Balaguer during a reception in Hanoi on May 24.
Party chief Trong told his guest that reciprocal visits made by high-ranking Party and State leaders and increased economic, trade and people-to-people exchange over the past years are vivid examples of the exemplary fraternal ties, traditional friendship, comprehensive cooperation and loyal solidarity between the two Parties, States and peoples.
The special relationship between the two Parties and nations is an invaluable asset that is always maintained, protected, fostered and handed down to younger generations, he said.
Jose Ramon Balaguer, who is in Vietnam for the third theoretical seminar between the Communist Party of Vietnam (CPV) and the CPC, expressed his belief that Vietnam will continue reaping more successes in the implementation of resolutions adopted by the 12th National Party Congress.
Informing the host of the seminar held on the same day, the Cuban guest spoke highly of the significance of the event, especially in the context that Cuba is actively embarking on the policy of updating the socio-economic development model.
At the seminar, head of the Vietnamese delegation Nguyen Van Nen, and Jose Ramon Balaguer shared the view that the event affords both sides a chance to share experience in theoretical issues and reality in the process of socialism building in each country.
Earlier the same day, the Cuban official met Politburo member, National Assembly Chairwoman Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan, who is former President of the Vietnam-Cuba Friendship Association (VCFA).
While in Vietnam, the CPC delegation held working sessions with leaders of the CPV’s Commission for External Relations, the Commission for Popularisation and Education, the Ho Chi Minh National Academy of Politics, the Communist Review, the VCFA and visited several socio-economic establishments in Hanoi and the northern province of Vinh Phuc.
